Lawyers for the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault don't have much time to respond to a request for her to testify on Capitol Hill on Wednesday. Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Chuck Grassley says if they don't respond or agree to testify, the vote to send Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court will happen on Monday. Kavanaugh's accuser was originally offered a chance to testify on Monday.        Senator Susan Collins says she is appalled by President Trump's tweet this morning lashing out against the California professor who has made a sexual assault claim against his Supreme Court nominee. The moderate Republican is considered a swing vote that could sway the confirmation battle in either direction. Today, Trump sent out a tweet asking why the assault allegation against Brett Kavanaugh is only coming out now.        The hashtag "Why I Didn't Report" is trending on Twitter. People are using it to tell their accounts of being victims of sexual assault. One woman used the "Why I Didn't Report" hashtag to say she was assaulted by a teammate during a combat mission in Afghanistan and was told not to cause problems. Another woman said her mother told her to keep quiet about the assault because if her father found out, he'd kill the boy who assaulted her.        Senator Ted Cruz and Congressman Beto O'Rourke have faced off in a fiery debate. O'Rourke is vying for Cruz's seat in the Senate. On immigration, Cruz said O'Rourke is out of step with Texas and said that he seems to be fighting for illegal immigrants. O'Rourke accused Cruz of seeking to deport eleven million people from the country.       Flooding from Hurricane Florence may be sending coal ash into the Cape Fear River. A man-made lake connected to the site of a former coal-fired power plant in North Carolina breached a dam today, sending its water into the river.Coal ash is a byproduct of coal-fired electricity, and it contains particles harmful to human health such as mercury, cadmium and arsenic.        Rapper and songwriter J.Cole is using his platform to raise money for to help Hurricane Florence victims. The Fayetteville, North Carolina native is planning to set up hot food stations, housing options for families and donate food to local shelters. Donations will also be given to other local nonprofits aiding the people of Fayetteville.
